Norway and Svalbard (Spitsbergen) consist of large areas of unspoilt nature and vast tracts of wilderness. These are unique natural habitats that we want to protect without human encroachment, be it in the form of fencing or official signs.
Norway is also a long, drawn out country where weather conditions along the coast or in the mountains can change at the drop of a hat. It is therefore important that you as a tourist are aware of the forces of nature and that you take with you the necessary gear for surviving in the countryside.
Our objective is to reduce the number of accidents and we therefore urge you to heed the advice of the locals and respect warning signs.
Use proper equipment when climbing in the mountains, engage qualified guides when visiting glaciers or Svalbard, keep to marked trails and always carry an up-to-date map in the mountains. Never set out in a boat without consulting with the boat owner or someone who knows the area and local weather traits.
